Blue Jays-Angels Preview

Curated by

 

The game was over almost from the start, when the Blue Jays scored three runs in the first inning against Angels starter Hector Santiago (7-7). The game between the Toronto Blue Jays and Los Angeles Angels Friday night was a contest between the American League’s top two wild-card teams, a possible playoff preview. The Blue Jays jumped out to an early lead and cruised behind starting pitcher David Price to a 9-2 win in the first game of a three-game series at Angel Stadium.

 

 

  • Price gave up two runs on six hits in eight innings, improving to 12-4 this season, including 3-0 in four starts since joining the Blue Jays in a July 30 trade from Detroit.
  • The Angels made three errors, and that doesn’t count the seventh-inning pop fly hit by designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion that fell untouched in shallow right field among first baseman C.J. Cron, second baseman Ryan Jackson and the right fielder Calhoun and was scored a hit.
  • Toronto had only 11 hits, but took advantage of Santiago’s early wildness — he walked four in the first inning — and some shoddy play by the Angels defense.
